  Description     : OpenStack Workflow as a Service client

 Mistral is a task management service. It is also known as Workflow as a
 Service. Most business processes consist of multiple distinct interconnected
 steps that need to be executed in a particular order in a distributed
 environment. One can describe such process as a set of tasks and task
 relations and upload such description to Mistral so that it takes care of
 state management, correct execution order, task distribution and high
 availability. Mistral also provides flexible task scheduling so that we can
 run a process according to a specified schedule (i.e. every Sunday at 4.00pm)
 instead of running it immediately. We call such set of tasks and dependencies
 between them a workflow. Independent routes in a workflow (which, in fact, is
 a graph) are called flows and Mistral can execute them in parallel.

Note: This is a new dependency of Murano, which graduated from incubation.
The project Mistral itself, is IMO not yet ready for an upload in Debian.
